  1. Sky Blake: ISFJ-T, "Defender" Traits: Introverted 53%; Observant 83%; Feeling 72%; Judging 53%; Turbulent 54% Blake is also a sentinel. Role: Constant Improvement ---- Tristam Core: INFP-T, "Mediator" Traits: Introverted 56%; Intuitive 76%; Feeling 78%; Prospecting 75%; Turbulent 63% Role: Diplomat Strategy: Confident Individualism ---- And then, me: ISTP-T, "Virtuoso" "Virtuosos explore ideas through creating, troubleshooting, trial and error and first-hand experience. They enjoy having other people take an interest in their projects and sometimes don’t even mind them getting into their space. Of course, that’s on the condition that those people don’t interfere with Virtuosos’ principles and freedom, and they’ll need to be open to Virtuosos returning the interest in kind."
  2. I know it's been a while since it was simmed, but we still need to talk about this genius scene:
  3. Ladies and gents, I have decided I would like nothing more than a show led with Anson Mount's Captain Pike and some adventures with Number One and Lt Spock. Honestly, if CBS doesn't do this, after that finale, those execs should be written off as mad.
  4. One of the biggest "complaints" from anti-Discovery viewers was always to do with "they have holographic technology before it existed!" - to which I always link to this Telstra ad: Fact is, "back in the day" of classic Trek, stuff like holographic technology was a blip on the radar - practically nonexistant. A twinkle in inventor eyes. Today, however, we've not only established VR (which, honestly could be considered early versions of a holodeck) but also have a very, very rudimentary version of 'holographic' capabilities as Discovery has established. If Calypso established anything, it was that Discovery ends up without a crew, lost in space for years. Part of me wants to believe that this is because of a huge disaster with the spore drive - a jump gone wrong, if you will, which would explain why the crew had to abandon ship and Discovery ended up alone for hundreds of years. Not implementing the spore drive in any other Starfleet vessel following this incident seems like the most logical conclusion. The technology is not wrong. It is more in line with how we consider the future.
  5. Fun fact, that Red Shirt (Commander Nhan) is actually a Barzan, a race introduced in TNG.
  6. Considered a 'long time simmer' nowadays, I honestly wasn't aware there was a difference between "Tag" and "Tbc . . . " (the latter of which I always use to sign off my sims). Only in rare occasions have I employed "End" - and even then, it's usually mission related. 🤷‍♀️
  7. Ensign Teller had quite the doozy in the lounge chat on Discord, and I felt it could not go unheard.
  8. Not sure which is scarier; sentient house plants trying to kill me, or Lorian Lovar.
  9. You're more likely to die or suffer a breakdown/injury under the short tenure of James T. Kirk than you are any one of the other captains. No thank you.
  10. Sky Blake hits the awards ceremony later in the evening with a bold Brekkian royal blue.
  11. Tristam in "Captain on the Bridge" Five minutes later, Roshanara after sending Tristam to her quarters in "Captain on the Bridge" And then there's me after those lines: For the record, Tristam remains onboard.
  12. Uhhhh . . . nay. Discovery rides the line along "oh that's a cool addition thanks to MA rating" and "we really did not need to see that" - and Tarantino has a habit of . . . breaking that line all together. I don't need a hard R Star Trek. I don't even need an MA Star Trek Discovery. If he wants to do a Star Trek film ala First Contact, then sure. Otherwise . . . yeah, no.
  13. Every time I think back on it, it feels like Tucker spent more time commanding the NX Enterprise then T'Pol did, despite not being the FO. He's a bit rough around the edges, but he'd have made an excellent captain.
  14. You know, at first I thought "She's a Sassy One, Isn't She?" was referring to this particular moment by Rahman; But then I kept reading and found this gem;
  15. I was mid-way through a tea when I read this "wait, WHAT?" gem and almost died. Thanks guys.
  16. All Americans, please check in.

  18. My engineering character Tristam (whom I've taken to calling the "anti-propulsionist") is very much pro-transporter in the face of slipstream drive and warp factors - I've begun toying with a transporter concept, not necessarily transwarp beaming as of yet, that he's been working on in his spare time in-sim. To simply get from point A to point B with next to no hassles, I see this is the way to go. That said, exploration should still be important, and completed with starships. The transporter shouldn't be the main transportation in areas that haven't been fully charted/colonized by the faction that's employing it (in this case, the Federation).
